Description
Inspired by the Altamira cave paintings in northern Spain—first noticed in 1879 by young Maria Marcelino, the daughter of an amateur archaeologist digging for artifacts, who looked up while her father was looking down—this book for readers up to 8 offers a gorgeously illustrated creation myth of "an old man who painted the sky." The rhyming text, in the rhythm of the song "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," begins with his painting of moon and the night, then sun and the day, then earth and the planets, then oceans and fish, land and animals, and finally people and children, who take up the paints and begin their own art.
